From T Kettle

Memories of spring socials. Sweet and creamy icing dripping down onto ripe, melt in your mouth strawberries.

It may surprise you to learn that the first recipe for Strawberry Shortcake appeared in 1588. Or, that the largest Strawberry Shortcake ever made weighted 9622.23 kg. Or that June 14 is Strawberry Shortcake Day. Or that we were able to capture the flavour of this newsworthy dessert so perfectly in this green tea. The more you know.

Green tea, Strawberry leaves, Strawberry, Cornflower + Camomile petals, Natural flavors.

Sipped this one last night over an evening of playing Among Us with some IG tea friends!

As far as I can tell, this one isn’t a recreation of any DT profiles and is actually a more “unique to T Kettle” profile. In quotations because it’s not like strawberry green teas, even this cakey/creamy strawberry green profile, are a new discovery – but I do appreciate that it’s not a mirror of something DT is doing, and I feel like it helps me actually get a better sense of what T Kettle’s style might be.

I was surprised by how much I liked this one – the smell is a bit artificial, like those “Strawberry Shortcake” scented dolls from the 90s that smelled like chemical strawberries and plastic. However, it doesn’t steep that way which was a huge relief! I mean, it’s still pretty artificial tasting – but not plastic/chemical. More the type of artificial of the mass produced grocery store cakes with the thick buttercream frosting that tastes really good for the first three or four bites and then if a bit too much.

In this circumstance, that very thick frosting note actually works really well for the profile they’re going for! I taste the fondant-like vanilla and rich creamy profiles mixed with a sweet and creamy strawberry and even without the name I know that what they’re going for is either a strawberry cake or a strawberries and cream sort of vibe. I also like that it’s thick and rich without being super sweet/cloying. Unlike those grocery store cakes that I can’t finish a slice of, I could easily finish the mug of this!

You for sure have to accept that (despite the use of natural flavouring) none of the flavours actually “taste natural” but if you’re willing to go down that round, it totally tastes like the namesake.

I always called that chemical strawberry plastic smell “little girl pink things smell”, hahaha. I’ve even found books at the library scented with that crap.
